New Year’s Resolution… what is yours?

New Year’s Resolutions come in many different shapes and sizes.  I like to spend some time before heading into the new school year, thinking about…

  • things that went well
  • things that could have done better
  • my work/life balance
  • work aspirations for the next year
  • personal aspirations for the next year
  • relationships in work
  • personal relationships
  • confidence in skill
  • how am I feeling about work right now?
  • how am I feeling about my personal life right now?

The new year is a great time to set some long and short term goals.  I like to think about the long-term goals that I have for my classroom, then set attainable short term goals.  Some goals can be met in a month, but typically I give myself 2-3 months to attain each short term goal!  This will get you to spring break, which is another time to re-think these goals!


My long term goals professionally are:

  • better differentiation of instruction that is pre-planned and ready to go for much of core curriculum
  • more communication with families regularly

My long term goals personally are:

  • spend at least 6 days a week for 2 hours each day at the gym!


These goals will help keep me centered and focused on the changes that I want to make!
